Klaus Dinger: the beat goes on. A drumbeat, fast and monotonous, which hardly varies but seems to go on and on: that is the Dinger beat. Named after that German krautrockdrummer Klaus Dinger (Neu! / La Düsseldorf). On this hour of Pop Art the ball is opened by Klaus Dinger himself as one half of Neu!. The remainder will be filled with Dingerbeat-followers. Dinger died of a heart problem on 21 March 2010.
